              NOVEMBER 30, 2005 -- FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE/ANNOUNCEMENT



             PCC tabs head of branch campuses
                to be interim Executive VP
         Marjorie Villani, Vice President for Pueblo Community College’s Fremont
     Campus and Southwest Center, has been named the college’s interim Executive
     Vice President following Orlando Griego’s recent announcement that he will
     retire from that position at the end of the fall semester.
         Villani is currently working with Griego to smooth the transition into her new
     role. Her appointment will enable PCC to analyze its organizational structure in
     light of ongoing funding challenges.
         With the tabbing of Villani, Jennifer Herman will assume greater responsibili-
     ty for the direction and day-to-day management of the Fremont Campus, where
     she is the Director of Academic and Student Support. Dr. Dan May will take on a
     similar greater role with the Southwest Center’s campuses in Durango and
     Cortez, where he has the same title as Herman.
         Villani became PCC’s Vice President for the Fremont Campus and Southwest
     Center in February 2002 following the retirement of Mary Griffith. She has
     worked for PCC since 1994 in a number of administrative positions.
         Having a new position will not affect Villani’s involvement with the Canon
     City community. She plans to remain on the Fremont Economic Development and
     Federal Prisons Community Relations boards and continue to be active in the
     local Rotary Club, Chamber of Commerce and other organizations.
         She also plans to continue to be active in Pueblo County and the Southwest
     Center service area.
